Subject:††††††††††††††††††††† Resolution authorizing execution of Task Order Number 1 with Booth & Associates, Inc. for engineering services related to transformer configuration and setup for a total of $46,400.00
Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing execution of Task Order Number 1 with Booth and Associates, Inc. (Booth) for a total amount of $46,400.00.
On July 23, 2012, Booth was awarded a continuing services agreement for electrical engineering professional services pursuant to resolution 9049.
The Electric Department is working to replace a substation class transformer at Substation 2 (East Substation) located on US Highway 441 across from Herlong Park.
This transformer was slated for replacement following the recommendation of a 2011 replacement study by an outside engineering firm and last summerís failure of the transformerís load tap changer (a device that raises and lowers the system voltage).† As a temporary measure, the Electric Department was able to bring Substation 2 transformer back on line by using a load tap changer (LTC) from the airport substation transformer which failed, but had a serviceable LTC.
The new transformer has been received and is in the process of being commissioned by the manufacturer.† Under Task Order 1 Booth & Associates will provide professional engineering services to providing a complete set of drawings and specifications for installation of the transformer and related electrical devices.† Following installation Booth and Associates, Inc. will test and commission all components into service.
1.† Approve execution of Task Order Number 1 with Booth and Associates, Inc.; or
2.† Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
This task order is for $46,400.† Funds are budgeted and available for this project in the Electric Fund.
